Stacking the Shelves

This weekly meme is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!



Had a pretty moderate week, which is just fine. Added 2 books to the TBR mountain, already reading one! Hoping the other is good, it sounded intriguing, but a quick check online showed mixed reviews.

The Taking by Kimberly Derting
Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano

 I also got some swag goodies: stickers, book plate and signed bookmark for The Taking from Kimberly!

Thanks Kimberly!!

Then while I didn't add any more from my luncheon event last weekend, I did pickup a few bookish things I wanted to share here as well!


 From left to right: a Scrabble tile necklace saying: Book Nerd
a wooden sign that says: Book Junie
More Hot Topic items: a necklace that shows the stained glass window of the rose that the Enchantress held
a POP figurine of Dean Winchester!



And that was my haul this week! What did you get?

  6. I don't know why, but Nearly Gone really appeals to me - maybe it's because of the numbers used to form the title? I hope you'll enjoy your new books, Jessica :) Happy reading.

  9. The Taking was good, I thought the romance was sweet and the plot was slow building. Love the necklace!
